We began today with revision of the verbs and prepositions from last week. (Answers and material below)
Then we moved on to the main part of the class which was reading part 7. We spoke briefly about the environment, and more specifically about trees. We watched a short video and then focused on an exam practice on page 33. Here we looked for words that give clues about what comes before and after the gap (e.g. pronouns, cohesive devices, time words, etc.) Students then completed the task.
Homework: please complete exam task on page 35 and 36.
Today we started class with a Kahoot that covered vocabulary and grammar points from parts 1-4 of the exam. (https://create.kahoot.it/l/#user/68d3e4d3-7587-4cdb-a1c5-0dad2244979c/kahoots/created)
This then led onto part 4 of the exam on page 26. We focused mainly on technique, instead of the individual grammar points (but we will look at these in more detail on Monday). Students worked together to isolate information in the sentences (exercise 1) and relate this info to the key word. We checked the answers as a class and talked briefly about the grammar points in these sentences.
Homework: please complete the proposal question found in writing part 2 of test 5. For those of you who have the exam in December, please complete the entire test.
